We will never forget...
It is impossible to speak of the Longmeadow High School
Yearbook without mentioning Mr. LeBlanc, or "Rog", as we
call him. He has devoted thirty-nine years of hard work to the
yearbook and dedication to the students. The Masacksic Staff
would like to thank you, Rog, for always being there for us. You
have been more than generous with your time and help. For
many of us, you have become more than a teacher or advisor;
you have become a mentor, as well as a friend, and your
classroom, a second home. We could not have done it without
you and we will never forget the effort you put into yearbook
and the touch you have had on our lives. You will be greatly
missed. We wish you a happy and relaxing retirement.
Thank you, Rog.
The class of 2003 proudly dedicates this years Masacksic to Mr.
Martin Conway. Mr. Conway always inspires his students to do well in
his class. He has a great sense of humor that makes learning seem fun for
all and has taught all his students to take pride in their work. He is also
willing to help a student to understand the material no matter what it
takes. No one will ever forget his "demented smiley faces" and witty
sense of humor. i
Mr. Conway is not only a great teacher to his students but also a
wonderful person. Last year, he recieved the Joseph]. Winseck award for
excellence in teaching. He is a caring individual who always has a smile
on his face. He is always there to support his students.
On behalf of the Class of 2003,
we wish Mr. Conway good luck and happiness in his retirement, you
will be missed at LHS.

Senior Class Advisors
Dear Class of 2003,
When I started out with all of you in September 1999 it was my first time as a class advisor. I didn't know
quite what to expect, but I knew that you were secial as soon as I began meeting each one of you in the strudent office
during class elections. Since that day, we have grown together through various fundrasiers and social events. My
personal favorites were the Lock-In, the Sophomore Semi and the Senior Class Play. What other class could have
pulled off West Side Story? As I write this, plans are being made for your senior activites and I know that they will be
the perfect culmination of a great four years at Longmeadow high School.
In addition to your high rate of participation in class activities, you will certainly be remembered for your
tremendous contribution to the successful Proposition 2 1/2 override. So many of you helped to write letters, make
phones calls and stand with signs to help preserve the educational quality of the Longmeadow school system.
I have enjoyed being both your teacher and advisor. I would like to thank Eric, Chris, Jessy, Megan and Liz
for their dedicatd leadership and I wish each and every one of you much love, happiness and success in the future.
Mrs. (Sra.) Maloney
Each time I write a Class Advisor Masaksic letter, it triggers reflections on the transformations of the students
as they have progressed from insecure Freshmen to the graduating Class of 2003. There have been many steps along
the way to graduation and they have not been the same for every student. Many of the steps were fun and exciting
and led to new experiences. However, if not all the steps have been positive, each one has moved an individual alon
their own path. Even missteps were opportunities to learn and thus make more productuctive choices in the future.
How many steps make up the path to graduation? From the moment each of you walked in the door as
Freshmem, you began your journey along your personal path. Many things have influenced your steps. Your aca-
demic achievements are obviously the most important. Athletics and club memberships have also made a large
impact. There have also been activities which involved you with Longmeadow High School and the other members
of the Class of 2003.
There was theTFreshman Dance where you stared at
all the other students and wondered how to survive. With
much more confidence there was the Sophomore Lock-In
which was a great success - who needs sleep any way? You
were really ready for the twinkling lights and sophistication
of the Sophomore Dinner dance. As Juniors here was no hes- |j
itancy as you enetered the room of the Junior/Senior Semifo-
rmal - all of you looked great!
The Senior Class Play was chosen with determination
and a "can do" attitude. The fantastic success of the play
came from dedication, hard work, determination, and the
willingness to put personal feelings aside for the "good" of
the play. The productions highlighted the tremendous prog-
ress along the path to maturity. This years' Junior/Senior S-
emiformal reinforced the feelings that you enjoy spedning ti-
me with your classmates.
Now as we prepare for the Graduation itself, remme-
ber the steps you took to get here. They will always be a pa-
rt of you memories, but it is time for new steps. The class is
no longer worried abuot finding their classrooms, they are n-
ow focused on finding theirfutures.
Good Luck to All - we will miss you!
Senior Class Officers
As we reach milestones in time our natural tendency is to look and
to reflect on experiences we have had and of times past. From our first
day of ninth grade, to the Sophomore Lock-In, the Senior Class Play and
Graduation Day, our time in high school will surely be remembered for
the events, happy and sad, that shaped our four years here. Hopefully,
the memories we take with us will become a part of who we are, and
allow us to look forward, empowering each of us to seek the best as we
travel through life. If we do this, we will always be proud members of
the Longmeadow High School Class of 2003.
We have been honored to serve as your Class Officers. Good luck to the
Class of 2003, and may the memories live on and make us stronger.

This year the LHS Symphony Orchestra soared
to new heights with interesting and original selections
of music. The group started the 2002-2003 year with the
Winter Concert, opening with a nearly flawless perfor-
mance of "Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 23," a piece
featuring the amazingly talent pianist, Steven Spinelli.
The concert closed with Jean Sibelieus' "Finlandia," a
piece never performed by the LHS orchestra. In the
Pop's Concert in February, "The Harry Potter Sym-
phonic Suite," was performed beautifully. The Major
Works Concert was a large success and was enjoyed
greatly by the audience. Music aside, the group had one
of its best years yet, and its largely thanks to the hard
work, dedication, and enormous talent of the members.

Lyrics has evolved greatly over the past four years. The dedication,
motivation, and love for music has increased with time. The year started out
with a wonderful performance at Umass in November. After much practice
and night rehearsals, the Winter Concert was a big success. The group
performed pieces such as, "Like Snow," "Ka Hia Manu," "Der Abend," and
"Lillibulero." These pieces are a great variety of different styles and periods
of music. At the Pop's Concert the group performed the popular song,
"Virtual Insanity," showing off not only the group talent, but the talent of
individual members of the chorus. After working extrememly hard for the
Major Works concert, the audience enjoyed the moving performance. The
group traveled to the MICCA festival in the Spring I vrics w.is also chosen
to perform at All State in March because of their great talent and dedication.
We will all miss this years seniors, but as usual the group will continue to
prosper and succeed in the future.

The Key Club is back and better than ever this year.
They provide us with little jobs that go unnoticed and
are underappreciated, but are important nonetheless.
The board members include: Niki Platzer, John
Chamberland, Kaitlin Dugre, Nora Katz, Philip
Landry, Ketti Chauhan, Lee Berman and Liz Chipkin.
Aside from their nearly countless hours of volunteer
work that the close to 120 active members performed,
the club planned its own events, including a spaghetti
dinner in the spring to benefit the Joe Winseck Schol-
arship Fund. Mr. Winseck was a long-time and well-
liked history teacher who passed away in the spring of
2002. The Key Club also joined other Key Clubs
across New England to participate in a region-wide
project on children's safety. The club teamed up with
Baystate Medical Center to educate the public about
everything from the importance of wearing bike
helmets and seatbelts to what the appropriate water
temperature should be in a young child's bath. Under
the guidance of its long-standing advisor, Mrs. Brown,
the Key Club has enjoyed another succesful year.

The Longmeadow chapter of the National Honor Society is
working hard to make this year a successful one by further-
ing the four main pillars of NHS: scholarship, leadership,
service and character. The activities of NHS are separated
into three main areas: tutoring, fund-raising and community
service. Community service encompasses the Society's
outreach programs, designed to fill a need within the school
and/or community. Sponsored projects this year include the
Rays of Hope Walk, the Crop Walk and a holiday Toy Drive
through the Grey House program. This year has been one of
many great successes and we look forward to future years.

Business Professionals of America
Business Professsionals of America
by Alex Shebar
The Business Professionals of America, or BPA as they are most commonly known, are one of the
strongest and most active clubs at Longmeadow High School. Teaching young and upcoming white
collar workers all they need to know about the industry, the club consists of a little less than forty
members, and many of them are active full time. The club has had many accomplishments throughout
this year such as many successful fundraisers, like selling bread from The Italian Bread Shop to hungry
students. BPA also had the chance to compete in a competition held in Chicago consisting of students
from around the country. With such leaders guiding the group as Tim O'Leary (president), Bobby
Sullivan (vice president), Mike Kirstein (treasurer), John Togneri (secretary), Joe Bragdon (fundraising
chair), Andrew Wernick, (member chair), and Joe Neal (historian), BPA was able to be a strong and
effective organization throughout the whole year. BPA tries to have its members achieve an understand-
ing of the business world for an upcoming profession after school is over, and they were very successful
with that goal from 2002 into 2003.

has been hard at work building a solid framework for success. The editors have
created a new process for editing, writing, and publishing stories while an en-

2002-2003 Impressions Staff
By Lucy Sheehan
This year, the Impressions staff is working hard to
achieve its goal of combining a love of art, poetry
and prose to create a school literary magazine
which represents the diverse perspectives and
voices of the school community. Each year a selec-
tion of student works is published in the annual
magazine, designed by Impressions staff. Led by
editor-in-chief Emma Plaut, the diverse staff hopes
to encourage the creative minds of the school's
students to reveal themselves through the publica-
tion of student writing and art. The staff members
make posters, read and discuss students' submis-
sions, determine the contents and layout of the
magazine, distribute the magazine, and, most
importantly, have fun!
jider the guidance of advisor Linda McShane, the staff hopes to create a magazine that highlights the talented and
ginal works of the school's art and literary community. This year's magazine staff is working under the direction
(its editors Elina Tochilnokova as art liaison, Kristina Bonatakis as art editor, Anna Chin and Tina Chin as copy
jitors, Lucy Sheehan as literary editor, Scott Rousse as English department liaison, Alex Shebar as publicity editor
Id Michael Jermyn as layout editor.
This year a new club has challenged longstanding ideas about an old art. The Knitting
Club has brought the pastime of knitting from the sitting rooms of old ladies, into the
realm of teenage girls, not to mention teenage boys. A group of 30 students, ranging
from freshmen to the vice-principal, Mr. O'Shea, the knitting club brings in all types.
This group, which is two-thirds boys, meets for an hour after school, once a week in
Mrs. Colgan's room to knit, talk and generally have a good time. The knitting club
allows anyone and everyone to come together to enjoy an activity that is not hard to
learn and allows its participants to take their minds off of their daily stress, and talk
with friends. Some of the most enthusiastic members include the club's founder and
president, Jimmy Fortsch, and his cohort Nick Magliato. The knitting club is helping
to abolish the stigma that has been attached to knitting for decades.

Oui! This is the French Club! Supervised by Ms. Buescher and Mr. Ream, the
French Club is expanding its members' knowledge of the French language and the
culture associated with it. Once every three weeks, the club meets to explore
aspects of the French culture such as food, clothing, etc., and plan up-and-coming
events and trips. While the club has not had any events or trips at this point in the
year, it does have some big plans for the future, such as a fund-raising candy sale.
This will help raise money that will be used for the French Club breakfasts that are
held perodically, and trips to French restaurants or stores, such as Northampton's
"Cafe Casablanca." The club's president is James Maxwell.

events that raise the awareness of
foreign exchange students and
promote global understanding. The
club was designed to help and
provide resources for foreign
exchange students coming from
other countries and students here, at
LHS, who wish to become foreign
The club organizes activities for foreign students in order to make their stay here in the New England area a memorable one.
One such activity took place during Jan 9- 12th. A total of eleven foreign exchange students from all over New England went to
Northampton with members of AFS and had a pizza party, a pot-luck dinner and brunch, and went bowling. Ms. Pollard is the
advisor for the club and Ryan O'Connell is currently the president. Former club president, Sara Wiseman, is currently living in
Costa Rica as an exchange student. Other club officers include Tina Chin as the club's secretary and Cameron Leroy as the
treasurer. Leroy recently came back from Japan where he was also an exchange student. The club has a bake sale every few
■ weeks and proceeds from the sale go toward the activities organized.
Students Against Destructive Decisions
Students Against Destructive Decisions is a club that spreads awareness
about drug and alcohol abuse. This year brought many great fundraisers
including donations, ribbon and lollipop sales. Just before prom, we
had fourth graders from the local elementray schools make postcards to
send to the seniors reminding them to make intelligent and safe deicions
on prom night. This year, SADD has become more involved with LHS
students and the surrounding community. We are thankful that many

Amnesty International is advised by Mr. Fitzgerald. According to Mr. Fitzgerald, "This
club helps to promote political awareness to the students and help them to get to know
what is going on in the world around them." This small democratic discussion group is
known nationwide. It is found in many other high schools and on some local college
campuses. Amnesty International is known as a human rights group, and it covers
interesting topics, such as women's rights and the abolishment of the death penalty. The
club also deals with many other current events to bring people up to speed on what's
going on, with topics such as the potential war with Iraq and the terrorist threat within
our country. "These topics are important as they relate to the Charter of the United
Nations, which is the Universal Declaration of Human Rights," said Mr. Fitzgerald. The
club also supports democratic peaceful protests on these issues but is not known as a
hands-on type of club.

The Science League is not only a club, but a national organization. Mr. Hirsch, the
science chairman at Longmeadow High School, has been running the club since it first
began about twelve years ago. The following is how it works: the coaches that repre-
sent each school gather in June to make up a schedule for the meets that we compete
in every year. Every meet consists of three events: a construction-type event, a content
event, and a general event. The biggest rival for Longmeadow throughout the years
has been Minnechaug High School, and there is usually about a one or two point
difference between first and second place. These activities provide an enjoyable way
to experience science outside of the classroom. Some of the goals of this club are to get
as many students as possible involved and interested in science. The Science League
aims to see all of the participants having fun, while doing the best that they can. Even
if you are not the best science student in the classroom, you can still enjoy science in
the world around you. So, if you like science, meeting new people and having fun,
then the Science League encourages you to join.

As Schools Match Wits is not only a group that
meets within the walls of Longmeadow High
School; it is a group that meets at the Channel
22 News Studio in Chicopee to compete
against other high schools in a quiz show
based on students' knowledge. For the many
members involved in this amazing group, As

gathering of a motley bunch of students; it
has been a group that has risen to success.
Along with their advisor Dr. Berger, members
Chris Breen, Keerthi Shetti, Adam Janes,
Maggie Lonergan and John Whang have all
worked hard this year to defeat Pioneer
Vallev Rgional, Lee High Scool and Hopkins
Academy in order to make it to the playoffs.
Already having been on three shows this season, the members of this group are well prepared to face Holyoke
Catholic, Enfield, St. Joseph's and Connick High School in the playoffs. Such playoffs will take place in April
and May at the Channel 22 News Studio in Chicopee and will be aired for the public in June. The first prize will
hopefully be awarded to the Longmeadow team, $150 and a dictionary for each member.

The Anime club has returned for its fourth year. It is dedicated to Japanese animation or Anime. Throughout
these years it has grown to approximately seven to twelve members who attend weekly meetings. These mem-
bers range from freshmen to senior. Normal meetings are held on Tuesdays in room 13. During these meetings
the Anime Club watches different anime series or movies and sometimes holds discussions about the anime they
just watched. Sometimes they draw anime style illustrations. So far this year, the Anime Club has watched two
series, Outlaw Star and Love Hina and one movie, Akira. On special occasions, the Anime Club will do different
activities. For the holidays their president and founder, Peter Cangialosi, brought in a Playstation and food for
the members. Peter Cangialosi, is not only the president and founder, he is also the supplier of the anime that the
club watches. A concern arises among the members about how the Anime Club will continue into the future
years, after Peter Cangialosi graduates at the end of this year. This issue is yet to be resolved.

een the model for other states. The students begin the program in kindergarten and follow through to gradua-
|on. In the beginning the prurpose of the program was to offer a solution to the problem of racial imbalance. The

A Better Chance
A Better Chance program in Longmeadow has been around for 27 years,
and this year will mark its 28th year of service. This national program
provides gifted inner city youths, mainly from New York City, with an
opportunity to excel in school and obtain a high quality education at
Longmeadow High School. The ABC scholars are removed from a
difficult educational atmosphere to a more academically challenging one.
Therefore, they have a greater chance of becoming more succesful.

Don't let the name of their first play
fool you. The Longmeadow High
School Drama Club is back and boom-
ing in its first year after a four-year
hiatus. Their first play, "The Worst
High School Play in the World/' was a
critical and financial success, as the
club sold over 200 tickets and made
approximately $1,000 profit. Founded
by three long-time thespians, Rebecca
Lesser, Kellen O'Gara, and Taylor Carr,
and with advisor Hilary Buxbaum, the
Drama Club is a group of 60 up and
coming actors and actresses. Every few
months, the Drama Club puts on a new
production. In the meantime, the club
meets once a week, and up to four
times a week when rehearsing. While
at rehearsal, the club members work
hard to create a set, design wardrobe,
practice with the script, and complete
all other facets of production that a
quality play demands. Their next play,
G.S.3., is a musical that presents a
whole new challenge to this motivated
bunch of dramatists.

By Alison Fitzpatrick
The Longmeadow High School Dance Team embarks on its first full year of involvement and events in
the community. The captains of the Dance Team, Callie Williams and Kathryn Bielunis, have worked
diligently to create an active club which captures the enthusiasm of girls who are interested and would
like to participate in a dance group. Callie and Katie have appointed a freshman, Natasha Conti, as
"Junior Captain", with hopes that by attracting freshmen to the team, it will be able to proceed into the
future as a fully functioning, energetic group. Thanks to the club's advisors Mrs. MacDonald and Mrs.
Steel, the Dance Team has been able to spread its cheer to the community. "Katie and Callie knew many
girls who had taken dance lessons and enjoy the performing arts. Many girls don't try out for the
cheerleading team, but wish to use their talents elsewhere. Many could not find the place to exhibit
them", says MacDonald.
Audiences of this group include, Longmeadow Days patrons, children at the Shriners Hospital in Spring-
field, and elderly at nursing homes. Practices for the Dance Team are weekly in the Longmeadow High
School gymnasium, on Thursdays, from six to seven-thirty pm. The Dance Team's involvement in the
community has been outstanding, and the dedication of its participants is to be commended. Members of
the Dance team include: Captains, Callie Williams and Kathryn Bielunis, Jr. Captain Natasha Conti,
Yelena Kondel, Megan Sikand, Justine Rosazza, and Liya Tochilnikova.

stereotypes in order to make our school a more socially aware environment.

FAITH club is back again this year and has been
keeping active by planning events and involving itself
in the community! The first event was See You At the
Pole, a chance for people of different faiths to come
together and share in spiritual community, which
proved to be a special time for everyone involved.
Then FAITH club's first sommunity project this year
was a collection for the Ronald McDonald House
charity. A couple dedicated members even gave up
some of their lunch break to collect spare change.
They ended up collecting almost $80, which says a lot
not only for their dedication but also for the generosity
of LHS students. Apart from trying to reach out to the
community, FAITH club has organized fellowship
activities that have turned out to be a lot of fun for all
who have attended. One example was a lunch out at a
pizza restaurant and then ice-skating! Under its advisor
Mr. Cormier, FAITH club has once again achieved its
goal of ofering a spiritual dimension to the LHS
community and has specifically used this year to give
back to the community, a goal that can be attributed to
the faith that there is in FAITH club. Members include
Kelsey Hall, Mike McDonough, Emily Johnson,
Meredith Johnson, Ramsay Ishak, Maggie Porter,
Emma Welch, Elise Heaton, Melissa Sunter, Christina
Lee, Eliza Mujalli and Julia Ishak.
Compilation of Thoughts
Women's Group this year is proving to be a
great experience for everyone involved. Each
week the group meets to discuss issues that
teenage girls face. Through the discussion, the
group learns about ways to avoid problems sue j
as eating disorders and unhealthy relationships
These meetings also provide the opportunity to;
make new friends and to strengthen friendships
One important concept the girls have been
exploring this year is the mass media's portray;]
of the "perfect" woman and how essential it is |
that this idea be substituted with valuing a
woman for who she is on the inside. Apart frorl
discussion activities, the group has done a walk
for breast cancer and is planning to do a walk
against domestic violence. They are also
planning to do a random act of kindness to a
local charity or shelter. It is obvious from their
accomplishments this year that Women's Groui
is a wonderful way for young women to come
together and make a difference.

The Young Democrats
By Eric Lesser
"I wanted to learn more about government," explains Maggie Lonergan, on her reason for joining the Young
Democrats. The club meets in Room 249 on Thursdays after school. According to advisor Mr. Fitzgerald, the
purpose of the club has been to facilitate "general discussion of different candidates and issues of concern to
Longmeadow students." Active club members include Maggie Lonergan, Leigh Dale, and Amanda Marsh, all
The club was active during the 2002 campaign season, volunteering on the unsuccessful Shannon O'Brien for
Governor and Kathy Grady for State Representative campaigns. Since last November's loss, however, interest
in the club has waned, and the membership is currently inactive. Maggie has been "disappointed" by the lack
of interest in the club since the elections.
According to Mr. Fitzgerald, the lack of interest in the club has followed a "general trend away from political
parties and a diminished interest in politics."
Maggie remains hopeful, however, that interest in the Young Democrats can be re-sparked next year. "We hope
to work more with recruiting."
Parents Advisory Council
The Parent Advisory Council was established to help
facilitate communications between teachers, administrators,
students and their parents. The Parent Advisory Council
utilizes its strong foundation of volunteers to coordinate
school related activities for the enrichment of all students.
